Our city does an annual Zombie walk around halloween. These were our costumes for 2010 for it. From the popular iphone game and the silent hill movie. The walk itself was even more authentic with the slump/slouch and head twitching for the nurse as well.

Day of the Dead Couples Costumes Tue, 23 Sep 2014 02:21:04 +0000 Day of the Dead Couples Costumes

For my costume:
I started the idea with an old ill-fitting dress with an amazing floral pattern. I designed my costume with a little nip and tuck of the dress, and added a corset to it. I made the petticoat out of tulle that I bought at the fabrics store. A good petticoat from the costume store can cost almost $50! I think I spent about $5 on tulle and the material I sewed together to make the actual skirt. I went to one of the craft stores in my area and picked up some of their sale floral arrangements. I plucked the flowers from the bunch and arranged them in a few fashions to accent the top. I bought a $5 black wig from Wal Mart and tied the hair over to the side. I made a flower schrunchi out of a black hair tie and some of the flowers. I then added the flowers to my hair with bobby pins. I found an old belt and tied it around the waist, and bought a pair of tights.

For my husbands costume:
We went to the Salvation Army and Goodwill and were able to pick up the suit jacket. We also found the tie there. These places are excellent to shop at for Halloween. You can find great, unique pieces at amazing prices while supporting a good cause. We then found a plain, black cotton hat for $6.99. I added flowers to the hat and made a sash with some funky Christmas ribbon I had laying around. For the jacket, I made the boutonniere out of the flowers and ribbon and just safety-pinned it to the jacket. I am far from professional, but after playing around with the flowers long enough, you kind of get the hang of it. I bought some $1 glitter glue from the craft store and decorated the trim of the jacket, and then added lace which I also got for a buck at the craft store. I just hot glued the lace trim into the jacket because it is was easier to do this than to sew it!

For the makeup:
We had a few trial runs. I saw some pictures online for ideas. I have worked with cream makeup in the past, but this year I ended up buying a translucent setting powder. This seemed to be the key in getting the makeup to set before trying to apply another layer. The makeup can be pretty difficult, but with practice it gets easier.

Overall, these costumes had a lot of thought put into them. Not only are the costumes, but they have meaning. As you can tell, they were also created on a budget and used mainly “recycled” materials! Thanks for considering our costumes :)

Sesame Street Abby Cadabby Costume Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:00:24 +0000  

Sesame Street Abby Cadabby Costume - CostumePopWhat an impressive run Sesame Street has had over the years.  The quite success of the show would put virtually all other television programs to shame.  Sesame Street has been on the air roughly forty years!  And the number of episodes is nothing short of amazing at roughly 4,200.  That’s right there are nearly 4,200 episodes of this wonderful children’s show.  In that time the show has received a whopping 118 Emmy Awards and is seen in 120 countries.  Now with a track record like that it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to learn that Sesame Street has created a lot of great characters which means a lot of great Sesame Street costumes.

Abby Cadabby is one of the more popular new characters added to Sesame Street.  This cute little fairy first appeared in 2006, and her Sesame Street Abby Cadabby Costume has been a big hit ever since.  One look at the costume and its easy to see why its just a popular girl’s costume.  What little girls wouldn’t love such a colorful Sesame Street costume?  The blue and purple dress also has picture of Abby Cadabby on the front and comes with pink fairy wings.  Don’t forget the matching headband and wand set to complete this adorable look.
